First-ever Alumni Weekend raises $16,000 for scholarships

On May 9, 2015, our first-ever alumni weekend brought together UW Bothell graduates, students, staff and community members to experience the lively campus that UW Bothell has become. It also celebrated 25 years of growth and educational excellence.

The Husky 5K drew more than 1,000 people to campus and raised $16,000 for student scholarships. The celebration continued at the Block Party & Brewfest with a crowd of 750 people from throughout the community who gathered to enjoy food, music and libations in downtown Bothell while celebrating the University’s active role in Bothell and beyond.

Our work with the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce and local businesses transformed the weekend into a widely inclusive event, and the overwhelming attendance and enthusiasm ensured that this inaugural Alumni Weekend will become an annual tradition.
